Thanks to an ebay auction we now have robot-mode images of the upcoming BotCon exclusive Octopunch.
Octopunch is based on the G1 Pretender of the same name, as you can see he's based on the HFTD Seaspray mold, and does not feature a new head. Oh and do you notice how the faction symbol is red, which means he's Shattered Glass? Well, congrats to those who spotted that back with the first image we saw of him.
You can click any of the following images to get to the original auction.

BotCon has tweeted a concept sketch for the BotCon 2012 convention exclusive Metalhawk. We got a teaser earlier this evening when BotCon 2012 registration went live and all six figures where more or less revealed. Metalhawk is a repaint of Generations Thunderwing with a new head sculpt. As you can see they are going for his Pretender shell look in robot mode. We will have to wait until next week for Metalhawk's full figure reveal, but for now this sketch gives us a good idea of what the new head sculpt will look like.

The official BotCon 2012 page has updated with the reveal of the "Heroic Decepticon" Soundwave. This is the third figure revealed behind Classics Gigatron and the Evil Autobot Tracks in the "Invasion" box set.

Botcon has confirmed via twitter what many have hoped for since seeing the teaser art for this figure. There will be a headband available for sale in the club store at Botcon. They go on to say that there was no way to mold the headband onto the head to do it justice. Also confirmed via twitter that there have been tweaks to the head mold so Soundwave can look straight ahead. Please enjoy the pics mirrored below or at the Botcon 2012 website.
